Lucie has made her own way through her very unconventional life. From the age of fourteen she grew up either on the streets or in residential care for minors. Her family today consists of her son Ewout 19 and her foster son Jonathan 29. In addition to her two sons, she has tenants and she is very connected to her neighbourhood. Lucie has become sort of a ‘grandmother’ of her neighbourhood. With the semi-public home functions, the numerous collective and collaborative projects she embarks upon, and her amazingly open and sharing personality, one can say she actually has a huge family.
The concept of being interdependent with others and with nature is key to Lucie’s lifestyle.
